Mosaic - "Humanity In The House Of Circumstance" 3D Model
This mosaic on our building contains more than 17,000 tiles, and is 10 feet high and 32 feet long.
It was designed by Robert Anning Bell and created over 210 days by a team of (mostly) young women during the construction period (1898-1901).
The neo-classical design “Humanity in the house of circumstance” symbolises personal limitations, and the fruit and flowers glimpsed beyond it, personal aspirations. The gates at either end are birth and death, and the figures represent Arts, Poetry, Music, Endurance, Humanity, Love, Hope, Charity, Wisdom, Meditation, and Resignation.
